Has anyone ever meddled with Saffron and Chocolate, I am trying to decide which type of chocolate would best suit this aromatic spice!

Sarah,

I thought I would move the topic here since 'saffron' is an ingredient.

Anyway, I suggest you go with white chocolate. You really would want the saffron to come through, and I feel it would be masked by a dark/milk chocolate.

Also, the colour that the saffron would impart on a white chocolate would be pretty.

I believe I have seen white chocolate truffles dusted with saffron.

Definitely try it out! Go with El Rey Icoa.

I have eaten lots of that saffron-ganache filled bonbons. The 70% chocolate he uses is too sour in general and that does not go well with the saffron taste. Maybe with a bit more balanced or nutty dark one it would be interesting. The white chocolate mousse with saffron is a Mediterranean classic and has been served with success in restaurants even here in Hungary for a couple of years.
